This Forecaster reports on the first meeting in our new Rotary year with President John Moorman presiding as his first meeting of the Alexandria Rotary Club (held in ZOOM format). The initial segments of the meeting were the same as always with Casey Lindsay providing a news cast, Taylor Barnes recognizing birthdays of several members, and Past President Sharon Meisel providing an updated report on our recent and successful Flags for Heroes. Jim Carmalt introduced our speaker, Cindy Butler who told us about the new Community Business Partnership (CBP) in Alexandria and specifically about the Women’s Center of Northern Virginia for which she is the directory. The elements of the CBP are: Woman’s Center, Small Business Development Center, Veteran’s Business Outreach Center, Business Incubation Center, and Business Finance Center. These centers basically focus on the area indicated by their title but also work in cooperation to assist people interested in going into business and also with other service providers.
